Even putting that aside he was 25-8-7 in his final year as a Blackhawk and he got the hawks to the WCF. Was the team a good one? Absolutely. But those are still starters numbers. Never mind he played more playoff games than Huet.
Good grief...since when is starting 40 out of 82 games considered starter numbers? Starting approx half the games may be good enough for your criteria but not mine.
Again the term and $ were a bit much, but looking at how much today's starters are getting paid...
It wasnt just the $ and term that were ridiculous...it was this decision to completely ignore Khabbys injury history and think that he would magically stop being injured. Aside from 1 year with the Hawks he had not been a reliable starter since his Tampa Bay days and that was a long time ago.
